"This amazing book shows young girls they can be anything they want."--Melinda Gates
"When I want to impart the message to my daughter that she can aspire to anything, be whoever she needs to be, the opinions of others be damned, this book becomes an inspiration."--The Guardian
"The anti-princess book teaching girls to rebel."--BBC News
"A welcome reminder to girls that nothing stands in their way - except a lack of self-belief. This book started as a crowd-funded project and has become a best-seller which is the best news of the year."--Daily Mail
"Elegant, colourful... and captivatingly told... In an ideal world, not only would mothers read this aloud to daughters, but teachers would read it to schoolboys."--Sunday Times
"Featuring spies, pirates, astronauts, activists, scientists, writers, sports stars and more, many of the stories are so thrilling and uplifting your child's heart may beat a little faster, her mind racing with possibilities. If she leaps out of bed to get to work, blame the authors."--The Guardian
"A must-have for the nightstand of every girl or young woman you know."--Forbes
"Modern and fundamentally feminist, this riot grrrl reinvention of the fairytale is so inspiring adults are also reading it in droves."--i Newspaper

That would have made me rate it like a 3 or 4. Here’s why it’s a 2: the quote in the front of the book. “When in doubt remember: you are right.”
I think to grow you must be self-critical - to a point. If you never believe you’re wrong, then you will never learn a damn thing.
Some of the stories are very good and I quite like them, but some of the stories are lacking and do not tell a very inspiring tale. A story about Catherine The Great only has a single sentence about her "great" deeds.
There are famous quotes that are MISQUOTED! "One small step for man, one giant step for mankind."????
I will be giving this book as a gift, that I will be editing. I was more excited for the idea of this book I suppose.
